They work together and share a tiny, barely air conditioned office for six months. Initially, the boy is put off by the girl’s (often loud) enthusiasm for life. But over time, her enthusiasm grows on him and they fall in love.
The leave Benin and the ship in December 2009. The girl returns to the Northern Hemisphere; the boy returns to the Southern Hemisphere. After many skype calls, paper work, dollars, and tears, they are granted permission to legally marry in America.
